Today was the Lexington Humane Society's 13th Annual Mutt Strut at Keeneland.  I have volunteered for this event the last three years.  It's always a great time seeing all the different doggies come out to enjoy strutting their stuff for such a good cause.  Last year would have been Elka's first strut, but she was at boarding school.  Needless to say she and thaKing were ready to go this year. The Mutt Strut is a 2K fun walk but nobody told Elka.  Apparently she was pulling thaKing wanting to run the whole way!

I miss the Banana Republic of old, where you could always find cute dresses and great work clothes.  Although, the last three years it has been hit or miss, and usually falling more on the miss side.  The  style and quality has greatly decreased.  Last year, I got a great deal on a summer suit, but my tailor had to completely redo the pants which were incredibly baggy through the hips.  Nonetheless, I'm always a sucker for sales ,and since I'm luxe I get free shipping, so this morning I said why not to this dress.  I guess I will find out in 7 to 10 days whether it's a hit or a miss!

Even though I don't watch as much 'crap' tv as I used to, I still try to find opportunities to watch almost any of the Real Housewives series on Bravo (with the exception of the ATL). thaKing groans, but is never surprised, to find the last channel viewed  on any tv in the house was Bravo.  Last nights RHONY episode showed the ladies, sans Jill and the Countess, going to the US Virgin Islands for Ramona's renewal bachelorette party on a yacht.  Really? Stuck on a yacht with Ramona!  I digress.  Kelly initiated some nonsensical yelling and ranting towards Bethenny, basically because Bethenny was human and has emotions.  Although Bethenny has published several books on healthy cuisine, Kelly states that Bethenny is not a chef but just a cook, since she has never worked for anyone she knows.  Hmmmm, cognitive dissonance disorder?  Bethenny, who is witty and acerbic, called Kelly the most unintelligent person she’s ever met.  I am in total agreement!  I represent a lot of crazy people and I think Kelly is crazy!  I can't wait to catch part II next week!  Hopefully, thaKing will be out again so he doesn't have a seizure from watching.

I've been absolutely blessed to have a wonderful mother.  We have always been best friends even through a few of those rebellious occasions in my teenage days.  She is selfless and sacrifices her own comfort and time to care for others.  I love you Mom, and I honestly hope that someday I am half the mom that you are .
